forecast some evening for 5F with
-2F windchill and some other evenings
of low teenies. hmmm...
i just went out yesterday morning
and took a picture of a flower spike
of a early iris coming up. i don't
think it's going to get through the
snow and ice layer any time soon.
bugger heavy too! shoveling in
stages to give the back a rest.
i had a bunch of crocuses out and
plenty coming up and many early
species tulips had curled up their
first leaves and flattened them on
the ground. very pretty red colors
in the leaves. can't wait to
actually see them flower. patience
i was ready to get out and do some
weeding and planting. ah well, more
time to practice guitar and catch up
on my indoor TODO list.
songbird (pouring heavy water on me
it's bright out there now with the sun
shining on the snow. earlier i took
pictures of some sparkles and shadows.
an icicle that i'd knocked off the
corner of the roof landed upright upside
down in the snow. i just whacked it
with the shovel and didn't pay any
attention to where it landed. when i
was coming in from shoveling i noticed
it and grabbed the camera again.
I never served in the military. I was between wars and the draft ended in
the mid seventies. And thought I had original mantra :). The military has
to have it wrong, it does not rhyme. Hour with Shower. It takes an
hour... to shit shave and shower.
It has to rhyme :)

In the US military there is no hour... you're lucky to get ten minutes
to shit, shower, shave, dress, and make muster... there's no time for
any poetry. lol
So, anyone unwrapping their fig trees yet?
that original post (to this thread)
was made Mar 23, 2011... :) the snow
has melted, the flower has bloomed and
is almost gone (see apr 1 pic thread
for links to pics).
since then it has been as high as 82F.
i've been able to get out and do some
weeding (and test out the new garden
pillow (works great)). a few dollars
in cloth and a few minutes of time spent
sewing the cloth on old pillows.
the last few years i've been using an
old seat cushion (that had a board on
the bottom and an inch of foam). i
finally wore that out so needed to
replace it. the pillow works better
as it doesn't have that hard board
so it shapes to the ground and it's
bigger so i can sit cross legged on
the pillow with my feet, legs and
the weather yesterday (Apr 15) was
rainy, very windy and chance of snow
last night. doesn't look like we got
it. the rain was needed.
we have tornado weather at times
too, but most of them go around us
(weather shaped by geography). scary!
